Specialty Pregnancy Table Available in Evans

Pregnant Woman | Serenity Massage + Wellness Spa

Several of our massage therapists have advanced training in side-lying pregnancy massage techniques but we also offer a pregnancy table that will allow the expecting mother to lay face down with no harm to the baby. This allows for better access to the back muscles and gives mom a chance to do something she has not been able to do since probably her first trimester.
